“Compliance concerns stymie companies eyeing IPO plunge”

Farella’s William Keane raises the issue of the "compliance gap." The difference between what new public companies should be doing and the steps they’re actually taking.

 

Keane comments, “Often when entrepreneurial companies go through an IPO and are maturing into mid-cap, publicly traded companies, their implementation of compliance programs can lag. What it takes to be a startup isn’t necessarily what it takes to be a regulated, publicly traded company. There are certain compliance requirements that kick in that sometimes companies are slow to adopt.”
